His Vacation Experiences in Germany.

In Enthusiasm.
Mr. Ernest Bcnnlnghovcn , representing
tbo German life insurance company , has Just
returned four the , old country where ho
spent a fond months vacation. Innconvcr-
latlon with o representative of TUB BKE Mr.
Benulnghovcn R.IVO a very interesting ac
count of tbo principal feutur.'s of his sweep
Asked ns to how tlio result of the United
States election was received In the fatherland
Mr. Bcnnlnghovrn replied :
"Tho people of Germany arc taking a great
deal of Interest Just now in two American
DHLs , the JMcKlnloy bill and Buffalo 13111 , tbo
latter being thoutrhttho best of the two. But
t Is money out of their pocket to take any
lactivo Interest In cither of tbo Bills.
"Ileforring to the trip Itself , I must reluto
that I reached New York , bound for Ham
burg , on July 1 , calling with a letter of Intro-
dilution from an Omaha friend on Mr. Carl
Schurz. the general director of the Hamburg
steamship line , whoso ofllco Is located on
Broadway. Mr. Schurz was found behind a
desk stacked with letters , opparently very
busy. Notwithstanding this , ho discarded
business for half un hour to prove a most
amiable talker , manifesting very much In
terest when u-c came to speak nbout Mexico
and the Sandwich islands , which countries I
had lately visited. On July U 1 boarded the
Normannln. a new twin screw Htcniner of the
Hamburg line , a ship 623 fcot long and sixty
wide , with all modern conveniences.
"while looking over the list of our fellow-
cabin passengers I noticed the name of
Chauncoy M. Depow , who made a very nlco
after dinner Fourth of July oration nnd soon
conquered the hearts of the passengers by
bis courteous manners. Wo also had somoof
tbo prominent members of the Salvation
ormyon board Mrs , Booth , Jr. , and General
lield Marshal Tucker of India. The coin
mandcr of the ship allowed them to hold
several meetings and make speeches &t which
Mr. Tucker always appealed In true Hindoo
costume. These representatives of the Sul
vntlon army behaved themselves In v. very
creditable manner , so that Mr. Depew
took occasion to ask for the ad
dress of their hradquaitcrs In Londan.
A prominent preacher of iioston , a delegate
to the pence congress , declared in a
epecch that ho , till of l.ito , had thought
them to be ripe for the lunatic asylum , but
was convinced after carulul study that they
Wore areut benefactors to u class which could
uot ba reached by the church and were bound
r to play a very luportnnt part In solving the
social problem. Be that as it may , they at
least took very good care of our souls , which
were out of icach of any church for the
tlmo being.
"On July 11 wo landed at Cuxhavrn on the
Elbe , where a special truln stood In waiting
to take us to Hamburg in two hours. Wo
found the Gorman passenger cars just about
as shaky as the ship but not near as comfort
able In mnny respects. In this country you
travel slower In compaiison to Europe , but
with much tnoro ease. At the custom
house ! Hamburg wo had to exc
else very much patience , especially n
fellow passenger who had waited an
hour for the inspector , who finally levied a
duty of 10 pennies (4o ( ) upon his cigars. The
American soon finds that It is all red tape
and clock work , when ho comes in contac'
with German ofllciids. But it is a grca
tnlstako to expect that a traveler Is molested
in any way by the police of Germany. No
body over asked for my passport or papers o
identification. From Hamburg to Berlin :
traveled in a German sleeper. For once and
" { fever more. Bad light , bad air prevalle <
and the abienco of water rendered soap ,
( owcls or mirrors useless , of which oven tui
railroad company seemed to have been con
Vincort , because there were none of thes
things. When dilvlng from the depot Int
the city I was at once struck with the solidity
and elegance of all the buildings lining the
Streets , while these were clcnnlllcss itself ,
although or because It had been raining for
weeks in succession and was still at it. As
the parks have a dreary appearance in such
weather , even In midsummer , I concluded to
visit the royal museums , art galleries , etc. ,
\vulcb are the grandest. I over saw.
"Berlin is certainly the cleanest and one of
the most beautiful cities in the world today.
The surrounding country is magnificent ,
especially Charlottcnburg and Potsdam. In
every park , in every public garden you may
listen to the finest music rendered by mili
tary and private bands , of which thcro are
very many In the capital of the empire. The
people of Berlin are growing to bo pleasure-
loving as the Parisians nnd have already
overtaken them In knowing how to enjoy
life on an economical basis. Jt is often said
by Gorman-Americans who have paid a visit
to the old country that its people look more
vigorous and healthy than ours. If wo would
take lifo as easy as they do and wcro blessed
with their temperate climate , wo would per
haps not be as btout as they are on the average -
ago , but ut least Just as healthy or more so.
There aio tow couutrics on this globe
tvliere diseases are so widespread as In Ger
many , which llnd their origin in over-eating
nnd drinking. Anybody who knows how to
study faces will sco at llrst glance that
the mind of the European is never so active
mid his future therefore not so attractive as
that of the American. This Is especially true
cf the Indies , who by the way arc noted for
displaying so much absence of "chic" nnd
tnsto In regard to dress. Concerning their
mauneis , tha American feels inclined to ad-
' vlso his European sistersas , , the poet did to
Imybashfulncsi , that justlo virtue by ,
To manly eonllilenco thy thoughts apply.
On a very line afternoon and evening I at
tended a tiommcrthcutcr ( summer theatre )
in Berlin utKrulls' Garden , one of the coziest
little parks in the city. The opera was given
In a laigo commodious building , well venti
lated , Bct\\ con the acts say ten minutes
tbo whole uudlcuco would leave the
tbuntro to promenade in the adjoining
park and enjoy tbo charming music
furnished by military bands. To ] the credit
of German a profession it must bo said
that the so-called "star system" as It Hour
Ishes hero Is not tolerated or practiced at nnj
of the many first-class theaters of the cm
nlro. The attention of the audience and UK
critic Is never solely fixed upon the talent 01
doings of the "star" of the troupe , but onh
those of the "tout cnsemblo" uro considered
"Another example given by the German :
worth imitating in tbo larger cities of this
land Is the regulation of btrect car traffic. .

American in great distress at the depot , as
ho could not make himself understood to the
railroad officials. Ho felt like/ embracing us
for helping him out of his dilemma , utul was
glad to bo ono of our party for several days.
It was nt this station , at the depot , too ,
where I asked a lady behind the luuch
counter for a glass of milk.
With smiles such as hang on Hobo's check
and love to live In dlmplo sleek , told mo that
I was the Hist person in her experience who

Wo then went to Wiesbaden , meeting many
Americans on the promenade grounds of the
Kurgarten , a very line , elegant park , but

"Leaving Wiesbaden and its hoof tea
water , wo maJo for Heidelberg , Frankfurt
and Kissincen to see Prince Bismarck. Ho
had not yet arrived , but was daily .expected.
On the eventful day ho was mot ut the depot
by on enthusiastic , tremendous crowd , which
seemed to bo spellbound when they got their
ilrst glimpse of his stern features as ho
alighted from the train. There i < tt certainly
no man today who can make n deeper im
pression upon the stranger than this great
prince , the llrst of men. No otfyur head is so
powerful , or any other face so earnest as his ,
But especially at that time did his features
betray a chagrin which could only bo swept
away for n few seconds by the many young
girls who showered flowers upon him on his
way to the carriage. The Germans wcro not
quick enough to llnd the light word nt the
right time , but joined in lustily when sud
denly nn American raised and swung his hat ,
exclaiming : 'Our great Bismarck , the maker
of history , hip , hip , hurrah I'
Whcii Bismarck acknowledged the chcois
by lifting hls'broad rimmed slouch lint , wo
all endeavored to see the three hairs on the
plateau of bis bald head , but failed to dis
cover any. Ho was apparently In the best cf
health , bis whole bearing and quick elastic
step proving It. It was rumored that Bis
marck , whrn Emperor William insisted upon
bis acceptance of the dukcship of Louenburg ,
had answered in angry tones : 'Your majesty
cannot make mo any groiter than I
am. ' After ho had finally consented
to this now title , ho is credited -with having
said that ho Intended to mnko nso of It when
ever ho wished to travel Incognito. The
same American who had electrified tha Ger
mans to cheer the ox-chancellor , approached
Bismarck a few days later on tbo promenade
In the park in n rather obtrusive way , by
boldly walking up to him , stretching out his
hand , which the priuco grasped reluctantly ,
whereupon our countryman bowed with
thanks , saying to Bismarck that ho felt very
proud to go homo to America nnd bo able tc
say that bo had shaken hands with the
greatest man of Europe. "

A Ohapter of Table-History on Indian
Ghost Dances ,
Tlio Dance Is Not New Nor Modern ,
Only Modified to Suit the De

Occasion. '
Nionnuu , Nob. , Nov20. ' ' [ Special to THE
BKE.J The cotntne of 'tho Indian's Messiah
is no new thing among Indians. It has only
taken new shape. His whole religious idea
is bused on tbo most ridjculoussuperstitions ;
and while ho has over this receat worship
become moro than usually crazed , it is after
all little worse than the ceremonies of the
Sun dances as they were performed in tbo
early days.
Catlin , in his "Eight Years Among the
Slaux , " describes Nu-AIouk-Muck a-Nnh
( the first or only man ) in the M.mdau cere
mony ns follows : I
"Groups of women and children wcro gath
ered on the tops of their earth-covered wig
wams , and all were screaming , nnd dogs wcro
howling , and all eyes directed to the prniriea
in the west , where iVa3 beheld , nt n mile
distant , a solitary individual descending a
pralrio bluff and makinghis way in a direct
line toward the village. }
"Tho whole village rioinod in the general
oxprestion of great alarm- If they were In
danger of instant destruction ; their horses
were caught upon the proirio and run into
the village ; warriors , were blackening thch
faces , and dogs were inuilcd , ana every pre

"During the deafunW din nnd confusion ,
the llguro discovered on the pralilo continued
to approach with n dignified step and In u

thing on the earth's surfao by water , but ho
stopped In his big canoe on n high mountain
in the west , where ho landed and was saved.
The Indians and all other people were bound
to make yearly sacrifices of some edged tools
to the water , for of such things the big
canoe was made. Ho instructed them
how to build their medicine ledge and
taught them also the fovms of these annual
ceremonies , Informing them that as long ns
they made those sacrlllces and performed
their rites to the full letter they might bo as
sured of the fact that they would bo the
favorite people of the Almighty , and would
always have enough to cat and drink ; but if
they should depart from these forms they
might bo assured that their race would do
orcase and ilnnlly run out , and might data
their nation's calamity to that omission.
A tradition nmongtho Mondans is that they
wcro the llrst people in the world , nnd they
originally lived insldo of the earth.
They raised many vines and ono of
them had grown up through a hole In the
earth overhead. Ono of their young men
climbed up this vine until ho came out on top
of the prouud on the bank of the river , near
where the Mandnn village stands to this day.
He looked around and admired the beautiful
country nud prairies about him , saw many
buftalocs , killed ono with his bow and ar
rows , nnd found that Its moat was good to
cat. Ho returned and related what ho had
seen , when a number of others went up the
vine with him and witnessed tbo same
Among those who went up wcro two very
pretty young women , who wcro favorites of
the chiefs bcc.uiso they wcro virgins. In the
number who wore trying to get up was
n very large , fat woman , who was or
dered by the chiefs not to
go up , but whoso fonialo curiosity
led her to try it ns soon ns she got a secret
opportunity. When she got part , vay up the
vine broke under the creat weight nnd lot
her down. The Indians wcro very sorry
about this and she was disgraced for being
the cause of a very great calamity , for no
inoro could ever ascend or descend. Hutthoy
built the M ami an village and the remainder
of tha people still llvo under the ground.
Thcso traditions are told with much crnv-
Ity by theinystery or mcdlcino men , If they
succeed in getting moro rations by means ol
this ghost dance , which is ono of the features ,
the Indian will have won a great victory ; foi
his stomach is ono of the busiest
organs of his system us long as there is any
thing to cat In sight.
As to the religious phazo of the ghost dance
It has the same theories as of old. The evil
spirit appears In Its performance and the
preat virtue of the Only Man keeps him from
destroying the good. On this point tbo tra
dition runs thus :
At a very ancient period the Evil Rplrll
carao with the Only Man from the west , and
sat down by n woman who had only ono eye
and was hoeing corn. Her daughter , whc
was very pretty , came up to her and the Kvll
Spirit doslrcd her to go and bring some
water , but wished that before she started
she would coma to him and cat some buffalo
meat. Ho told her to tnko a piece
out of his sldo , which she did , and nto It ,
which proved to bo bulTalo fat. She thoi
went for the water , which she brought , ant

where the child was born.
Great search was m.ulo for her
botoro she was found , ns it was expected that
the child would nlso bo "great medicine" or
"mystery , " nnd ol isreut importance and wel
fare to the tribe. They wcro induced to this
belief from the very strange manner of its
conception and birth' , and were soon con
firmed in it from the wonderful things tthich
it did at nn tarly ago. They say that among
other miracles ho performed , when they were
likely to starve , ho gave them four buffalo
bulls , which filled the whole village , leaving
ns much incut as there was before they had
eaten , saying that tneso four bulls would sup
ply them forever. The Only Man was bent
on the destination of the child , and , after
making many fruitless acarciies fdr it , found
It hidden In a dark plnco , and put it to death
' r throwing it into the river. When the
uvll Spirit hoard nf llio death of this child , ho
sought for the Only Man Intending to Ml'
him. Ho traced him a long distance am

By sueh "traditions" fis these Is can bo
easily seen how easily an Indian can bo

it will bo scon that the Evil Spirit Is made to
